Cisco’s purpose is to power an inclusive future for all. That means everyone.
When we see injustice-whether affecting everyone or specific groups-we act boldly, bravely and deliberately to make change, remove barriers and support communities.
Our purpose is fueled by what we believe. These beliefs inform how we act as a business, including our commitment to social justice.
Our beliefs are constant. They don’t go away, or end. They serve as an ever-present inspiration.
Beliefs are important. But more important are the actions they inspire. The umbrella of inequality manifests differently across groups. We are confident we can answer the call to action when we see discrimination, injustice or inequality in whatever form it takes. We will be relentless in our efforts to do so.
Cisco will continually reassess and recalibrate our efforts when needed to meet the above metrics and goals. And we’ll be transparent about where we still need to do more work. This is how we hold ourselves accountable in the service of true impact and change, as we continue to expand these actions across the full spectrum of diversity.
